My eta is 7/2 as well (ordered on 4/26).

Just spoke to Subaru customer service today in fact, and the car is assembled and expected to make it to the U. S. on 6/21, and then from there to the dealer.

Oh, and I'm in Pennsylvania, in case you're using the mobile app and can't see my location.

I got the email stating my car was loaded onto a special train designed for cars on 13 Mar 2019. Because of historical flooding in where I'm based and surrounding states, I didn't get my car until 20 April 2019. Hope it's faster than expected.

Good deal, as long as you like it. I had a drawn out post about how you could be trying to just "toot your own horn" but I figured it's best to be positive instead of a troll.

Not really, I didnt really care about the deal. Everyone hear was posting oryxes and wanted to see how Id compare.

A Type R and STI were the save price in my area. I did the stupid thing and bought an inefficient dinosaur. But I love that AWD and rumble

If it makes you happy and suits your lifestyle then just enjoy the frequent fill ups haha. Wish I could get some realistic advice on the mpg, since my wrx gets 27 mixed and 31 highway...can the sti expect to get 20 city and 25ish HWY?

That would be a no lol... I get about 19mpg combined no matter how I drive it. If you're driving exclusively highway, you'll see maybe 21. Smiles per gallon though! The STi is seriously excellent in that department.

I am getting about 16 city, 21 combined and 26 highway in my STI.

Type R being FWD was a show stopper for me.

26mpg highway at 55mph, flat road, with cruise control, and a tail wind of 45mph?

On my weekend drives my STI shows 25.5-26mpg on the screen if it's a relaxing cruise (mixed surface and highway). I am running AP Stage1+ though in the default Sport mode.

65mph for me and I would see 25-26. Cruise control and sport mode.

Once I got out of my race everything stage, 20-21 combined was my average. Pretty flat out this way though.

Hey everybody! I finally put in my order for '19 WRX Limited 6spd -CWP! (Bren tune planned). So stoked.. I got it for $3k below MSRP with all the options I wanted so I am happy. I ordered on June 11th, got my first email from Subaru of America the next morning with an estimated delivery date being the last week of August. Which I kind of planned that way so that the summer months can pass and take delivery closer to the fall. But its gonna be a long summer lol.

So I want to start ordering stuff while I wait, I remember seeing several posts about the Perrin shifter stop being a must for these cars for cleaner shifts. I was wondering if that is still the case for the 2019 models ? Not sure if that issue had been fixed. (Also I ordered the car with the STI short shifter).

500 miles through the Colorado Rockies over 3 passes. 26 mpg. Not driving hard but not taking it easy by any mean.

I got the short shifter and also the shift bushing offered by Subaru. I am OK with it. But I do think it could be better.

Hello everyone, first post here!

Last friday I ordered my 2019 STi Sport. I got 1000 CAD out of MSRP, which was already lowered by 2k.

The status changed to "ON BOAT" yesterday, and they're telling me 3 to 5 weeks to recieve it. I'm going crazy waiting for it!

Bit of background, I come from a 2013 Scion FR-S (or brz, or 86, wtv suits your boat).
I found the STi was the only car that didn't give up on that sporty feel, but still provided me the much needed space and a LOT more power hehe. Litteraly can't wait!

Sooo I'm looking into trading in my 18 WRX for a 19 STI....

I've shopped at local dealerships, and it seems in my area (NJ) base can be had OTD for around 34k. Is anyone getting anything better than that? I'm talking no options however....

I don't think I need any of the options (short shifter etc, already have another set of weather mats, ) so I'm trying for 33k..

Is this realistic?

Also, insurance quoted me 50$ less per month from moving from a WRX to an STI... Makes zero sense, but the agent confirmed it multiple times that it was indeed an STI quote.

I recommend not using this forum as a good deal indicator. If the price you negotiate is what you like, what does it matter what someone in a different state gets. All markets are different, in every state or dang near every city.

You like the deal and can afford it, get it.

Does sound odd that insurance would be less for an STI. Maybe it's because more people mod the WRX.

Nobody here can tell you if you are getting a good deal. With a 1 year old trade I think that what you get in trade for the 18 is probably more significant than what you are paying for the 19.

I doubt you will get them to come down on the price another K. If I were you I would try to push the trade up instead. It looks better for their stats.

Akrexak summed it up well. Its all about whether you are comfortable with the deal. I have bought many cars. The biggest thing is not what you pay for it. Rather it is whether you still like the car a year down the road.

I test drove the 19 STI and i was pretty underwhelmed. My stage 1 18 WRX feels faster, and i think it has to do with a more linear power curve.

I was driving it in s# mode and granted it was on the street, but even pedal to the floor i felt like meh. Shorter gearing, and the shifting is loads better than stock WRX however. The exhaust sounds very tame too. I was expecting that boxer rumble, but it was very quiet.

Although the STI has LSD, the suspension wasn't all that different from my WRX with springs. There are certain creature comforts that make the STI interior more appealing. However, the interface on the touchscreen is not as appealing visually or user friendly as mine on the WRX.

I would be rolling in about 1500 negative equity into a new STI. The only thing that would really make me change is if i was able to get more on the trade, and pay off some payments to roll in positive equity or break even. I would probably revert the car back to stock, and use all the aftermarket parts on the new STI if i did get a great deal.

I will say that WRB on an STI looks fckn beautiful though. I think it would be between that or white.

Financially, my thought process is.... If it is indeed 50$ less per month for insurance, i can offset that by the extra cost on the 19. So i may pay a bit more, after breaking even on the insurance savings, on cost. If i find one in NJ that has been sitting on the lot, with some of the stuff i want, then i'll probably have much more leeway in negotiating.

The insurance agent's reasoning behind the lower insurance is that the STI has more safety features than the WRX, and also i don't live in the city, and have a relatively clean record.

I went to my local dealer first and wanted the Recaro pkg. Tried to negotiate it down to at least 35k and they declined.

So I went to Mass the next day and I got my '19 STI for 33k before taxes with no options back in Feb. with 1.9% APR. Great deal to me tbh.

$33k with the Recaro seats? Seems too good to be true.
